The problem is, the technology will be spread to other company soon. Look at iphone, Samsung can mimic it very well and even surpass it. Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, BMW and Mercedes have much more resources and customer base then Tesla. Tesla's advantage will soon end.
Exactly and that's why I said Tesla is a revolution. Musk and his Tesla sent the message so strong that it can't be ignored and it will pull others will join this revolution. Every genius/visionary in this world pass a message to others to follow. Tesla leading the EV revolution and after 100 years, we may have technology that will give 3000 miles in one single charge and charging time might take even just 30 minutes.
And God said to us - "my dear sons and daughters, I don't know what you want. So I give you one single thing, using that you could make anything you want, and that's your brain."
Tesla's Musk leading a revolution.. and many believe he is much more than Steve Jobs.
It's the entire human civilization that counts, it does not care if some adallica exists or not. For an individual, the length of the life does not give the value, it's the depth of the life that gives the value. It does not matter how long one lives, instead it matters how long one lives after he/she dies. great people are forever. Musk will be remembered for his excellency in developing a new dimension in auto industry.
